Working with oils.

I had been working with acrylic lately, but for some work you just want the feel and lustre of oils.

However, it's a pain to work in oil, because the clean-up is cumbersome, and quite often I simply ruin the brushes after one use.

I call my latest work "dining room baseboard and door frame trim."

When my wife and I painted a wall Radish Red (or - "A darker shade of pink" as I refer to it) she put me to shame with her ability to avoid painting the floor/ceiling. Let's just say I did not miss a calling to work in home repair.
